LSU opened the season with back-to-back shutouts for the first time since May 30, 2015 and June 1, 2015 when the Tigers blanked UNC-Wilmington, 2-0, in consecutive games in the Baton Rouge Regional.

The teams will cap off Military Appreciation Weekend with a game against Air Force at 1 p.m. CT. 

Freshman right-hander Eric Walker will make his collegiate debut on the mound Sunday.

Poche' improved to 1-0 on the year after throwing seven innings and striking out four. 

Left-hander Ty Giovinco (0-1) suffered the loss for the Black Knights. The sophomore tossed five innings and gave up six runs on nine hits with one walk.

The Tigers took the 3-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning. Designated hitter Bryce Adams led off the inning with a double and catcher Michael Papierski followed with a single to put runners on first and third for third baseman Josh Smith. The freshman followed with a sacrifice fly to centerfield, which scored Adams. After centerfielder Antoine Duplantis reached on a fielder’s choice, shortstop Kramer Robertson tripled to the right field corner to drive in two runs.

LSU tacked on three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. First baseman Jake Slaughter singled through the right side, and left fielder Beau Jordan doubled to right field to put runners on the corners. Adams was hit by a pitch to load the bases, and Slaughter scored on a wild pitch. With one out, freshman third baseman Josh Smith singled to first base to score Beau Jordan from third. Second baseman Cole Freeman followed with a single to third to score pinch runner Zach Watson as the Tigers took the 6-0 lead.
